In the next decade, over 71 million Americans will be 65 years of age and older. With the increasing numbers of older persons and persons with lifelong disabilities living longer, we will see a broader demand for home and community-based services. These services will help manage activities of daily living that may be limited as a result of acute or chronic conditions, and will keep people integrated in their communities.
Easterseals Washington offers programs for older adults to help promote wellness, independence and connectivity among the growing number of older Americans. Click any program below to learn more.
Adult Day Services
Easterseals Washington is now managing the three Elder and Adult Day Services (EADS) programs in Bellevue, Bremerton, and Des Moines. This program ensures that adults with disabilities have the opportunity to live, learn, work and play as a vital member of their own community.
Easterseals Washington's Workforce Development program provides Community Access. Individuals with disabilities over 62 years of age may be retired but still need that one-to-one support to access their community for everyday activities.
Camping & Recreation
Camp Stand By Me is about all the things children and adults can do -- swim, ride horses, sing, eat s'mores and more. Easterseals Washington has camping & respite programs to provide a safe, barrier-free environment for children and adults to experience all aspects of camp without usual limitations.
Nationwide, as many as 54 million Americans have a disability. Maybe your neighbor has an injury resulting from a motor vehicle accident, or your coworker has a child with cerebral palsy. Your grandmother may be recovering from stroke -- or maybe you are one of every five Americans with a disability. Look around you, and you'll find people of all abilities who are vital participants in their communities despite the barriers they may encounter.
